Abstract : A shoulder-launched multi-purpose assault weapon with a removable rocket tube and spotter-barrel is provided. The rocket tube and spotter barrel assembly is a standard receiver and trigger assembly. The grouping of the tube and barrel in a single removable assembly allows quick field replacement for either repair or reconfiguration of the weapon to a different rocket size. The sight assembly is also removable by sliding the sight out of dovetail attachment points. A further benefit is that different rocket tube assemblies may be preboresighted at the factory, thereby also reducing field assembly time.
